Zlatan urges Wayne Rooney to quit Man Utd for PSG
Zlatan Ibrahimovic says things are not going very well at Manchester United at the moment and Wayne Rooney should join him at Paris St Germain.
But if Rooney’s reasons for wanting to leave Old Trafford were that he didn’t want to play second fiddle, Ibrahimovic has already made it clear that he would remain the headline act even if the England international moves to France.
The Swedish star said: “I think he made it clear in the summer that he wanted a fresh challenge – and things have not been going so well for Manchester United this season.
“If he still wants to move next summer or even in January I would urge him to come and play with me in Paris.
“The only direction this club is going is up, but if he did join he would have to get used to the fact that Zlatan scores even better goals than he does.”
Talking about himself in the third person: classic Zlatan.
He added: “When there was talk of Wayne Rooney joining us in Paris it was a prospect that excited me.
“I don’t just want to play with just great players I want to play with technically great players – and that is what he is.
“You can work on the technical side of your game – but it is not something you can be taught.
“You either have it or you don’t – and Rooney does.”
